My Ride: '03 330Ci
Help! Couple questions about the HK system..

Ok, so I just got my '03 330Ci with the HK system and I love it. Everything is stock except for an iPod kit.

I have a couple problems - there's a very slight buzzing sound from the radio. I'm assuming it's a blown speaker, but it doesn't sound like a typical blown speaker where the sound is really distorted. It might be feedback. Has anyone had this? One of the 3" speakers in the door was replaced, and the other wasn't, so I'll check that out in a second. I just wanted to see if there were any other possibilities.

The second is I'm pretty sure the subs are blown. I have the bass up at a reasonable level (above half) and nothin comes out. I checked the wiring and it seems to be ok.. unless there's a way to reset the system?

If they are blown, I am considering a Alpine MRP-1000/Alpine Type-X replacement, and wanted to find out the location of the stock amp, or if I could use the wiring from the stock HK sub/amp. I don't have any room to work and I don't want someone from Best Buy tearing through my interior. Basically it would save a lot of time and money if I could.

Here are a couple pictures of the car;

This will help you locate the stock amp and probably add an after market sub.
